Recently I have gotten some request for an update on being a Jamberry Nails independent consultant. . . asked and answered.
So, I signed up to be a Jamberry Independent consultant in November.
I decided to be a consultant because . . .
1. I LOVE Jamberry’s <—duh.
2. If you are a consultant, you get your Jamberry’s for a reduced price <—score
3. I wanted to share the Jamberry love
4. And maybe make a bit of money to pay for my Jamberry obsession
The sign-up process was easy. For $50 (Normally $99 but I used part of my party sales earnings to put towards becoming a consultant), I got all of this…
And I picked my website name and that was it.
I got support from Jamberry and the consultant team I joined – Thanks Tara!
They also get you involved in a few Facebook pages where you can ask questions, get answers, and get advice.
The company is also pretty supportive in encouraging you to become active quickly and gives advice on how to do that.
From the Jamberry Nails website:
If you’ve already been wearing Jamberry Nails, you know they are addictively fun. Joining Jamberry Nails as an Independent Consultant gives you a flexible, social way to earn extra income selling a product that people are actually excited to buy. Our designs are natural conversation-starters, so just wearing Jamberry Nails means you’re marketing your business.
After that, it’s up to you.
With Jamberry, it’s all about what you want to do with it. You could probably spend hours upon hours doing marketing, selling, parties, etc. Or you can do as little as you want, depending on how much time you want to put into it. You can do Facebook parties, catalog parties or in-home parties.
I haven’t done any in-home parties yet, but Facebook parties are a lot of fun – they are basically like catalog parties for other products (like 31 or Pampered Chef).
I personally have been pretty low key with it. I try not to do too many Jamberry things on Facebook or the blog. I want people to know about how awesome and fun they are. . . but I also don’t want people to get annoyed hearing about them all. the. time. I have had a few Facebook friends who have gone way overboard with marketing and I have gotten pretty annoyed – I don’t want to do that to anyone!
As for me, I am glad (so far!) that I have become a consultant. I love wearing Jamberry’s and showing them to people. I also like handing out business cards and samples so that others can try them too. BTW – let me know if you want to be hooked up with a free sample to check them out for yourself!
Also, if you are interested in becoming a consultant, please feel free to email me questions about it! AND I would highly recommend having a Facebook or catalog party to get started. It can help gauge interest in your friends and family and you can use $50 of your party rewards to get your Jamberry nails starter kit.
Do you have a side business? What do you think about it – good/bad/worth the time?
